Officejet 6500 Wireless prints blank page

Why does my Officejet 6500 Wireless printer print a blank page after I installed a brand new cartridge, even after I cleaned the cartridge?

Sorry that you are experiencing this issue with printing blank pages. This can be a issue with the print head. You can try to clean the print head with a lint free cloth and water. 


Another thing would be to perform a hard reset on the printer. Unplug the power cord from the back. Leave it out for 30 seconds and plug it back in. 


See if you can print a self-test page or printer status report.


Let me know what happens.
